Wasabi Anyone?

As you may have heard already, in our family it's tradition that whoever's birthday it is gets to pick anything they want for dessert and I make it for them. So recently we had a birthday dinner for Lindsay, who turned 15 and Jayce, who turned 10. Lindsay knew right away that she wanted a strawberry dessert ice cream cake with real strawberries on top. Easy:Jayce, on the other hand, had to think about it for a while and then later on came up with the fact that he LOVES cinnamon rolls. Ok. Then LaRee (their Mom) had a great idea that I surprise him and make him a sushi cake since he LOVES sushi. So I searched around on the web getting ideas and this is what I came up with:
I frosted twinkies and then dipped them into coconut and shoved little gummy candies in the middle, followed by orange sprinkles as the caviar. I also used Little Debbie swiss rolls and wrapped them in fruit by the foot (I had to paint these with food coloring since they didn't sell the color I needed) and shoved candies in again. I also cut little powdered donuts in half and wrapped fruit by the foot around it with a Swedish fish inside. The wasabi is tinted frosting and the ginger doesn't look that great, but is mango flavored fruit roll ups.

Kaitlyn was a little nervous because Jayce ate all the sushi!

But do not fear, there's enough for everyone!
